Moses was born of a slave. He was found by an Egyptian and raised by the Egyptian elite, where he learned the language of the stars. He walked through the desert for 40 years and was led by a cloud of smoke during the day and fire at night. Most Bible readers have no clue what this cloud/fire is. This is due to the lack of understanding the language of the stars/signs/symbols. But, its simply common sense to realize how Moses was guided for the 40 years in the wildermess.

Mazzaroth (Mazarot תוֹרָּזַמ , LXX μαζουρωθ) is a hapax legomenon (i.e., a word appearing only once in a text) of the Hebrew Bible, found in Job 38:31-32 . The similar word mazalot ( תוֹלָּזַּמ ) in 2 Kings 23:3-5 may be related.

The word’s precise meaning is uncertain [1] but its context is that of astronomical constellations, and it is often interpreted as a term for the zodiac or the constellations thereof. [2]

In Yiddish, the term mazalot came to be used in the sense of “astrology” in general, surviving in the expression “mazel tov,” meaning “good luck.” [3]

The appearance of the word in the Book of Job appears in the context of various astronomical phenomena:

“Canst thou bind the chains of the Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou lead forth the Mazzaroth in their season? Or canst thou guide the Bear with her sons?” (JPS 1917) [4]

The related word mazalot ( תוֹלָּזַּמ ) in 2 Kings may have a different meaning, and is often translated differently, with the linkage of this word to the planets or the zodiac being more widely held (in Kabbalistic astrology, mazalot was also used for astrology in general, [5] and the word may be related to the Assyrian manzaltu, “station” [6] ):

And the king stood on the platform, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep His commandments, and His testimonies, and His statutes, with all his heart, and all his soul, to confirm the words of this covenant that were written in this book; and all the people stood to the covenant. And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the LORD all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the Asherah, and for all the host of heaven; and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Beth-el. And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to offer in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that offered unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the constellations, and to all the host of heaven. [7]

The Septuagint, however, uses the transliteration mazzaroth (μαζουρωθ) again at this point. [8]

The word is traditionally (following LXX) left untranslated (ABC, ACV, AKJ, ASV, BBE, BIB, ESV, GNV, HNV, JPS, K21, KJG, KJR, KJV, NAB, NKJ, NRS, NWT, RSV, RWB, TMB, TNK, UPD, WEB, YLT, LXE, ZIK), but some modern English Bible translations render it as “zodiac” (AMP, CJB, EMP, LEE); others have “constellations” (CJB, CSB, DBY, NET, ERV, GWN, LEE, LIT, MKJ, NAS, NAU, NIB, NIV, TNV, WEV) or “stars” (CEV, NCB, NIR, NLV, TEV).

But as the Latin Vulgate renders the word as “luciferum”, there are alternative English translations as “morning star” (CVB, TRC, also Luther’s 1545 German translation, as Morgenstern); “day star” (DRA); “Venus” (MSG); “Crown season” (NJB); “sequence of seasons” (NLT); “Lucifer, ‘that is, dai sterre (day star)” (Wycliffe’s Bible). WES [clarification needed] gives “stars in the southern signs”.

Translators’ Notes given in individual translations are:

Geneva: Certain stars so called, some think they were the twelve signs.

KJV/KGB: {Mazzaroth: or, the twelve signs}

NAS/NAU: perh. “a constellation”

NET: The word תוָּזַּמ ; (mazzarot) is taken by some to refer to the constellations (see 2 Kings 23:5), and by others as connected to the word for “crown,” and so “corona.”

NIB/NIV: {32 Or the morning star in its season}

The subjoined list gives (largely on Schiaparelli’s authority) the best-warranted interpretations of biblical star-names:

Kimah, the Pleiades

Kesil, Orion

Ash, or Ayish, the Hyades

Mezarim, the Bears (Great and Little)

Mazzaroth, Venus (Lucifer and Hesperus)

Hadre theman — “the chambers of the south” — Canopus, the Southern Cross, and α Centauri

Nachash, Draco

Kimah and Kesil

The Bible names some half-dozen star-groups, but authorities differ widely as to their identity. In a striking passage the Prophet Amos (v, 8) glorifies the Creator as “Him that made Kimah and Kesil”, rendered in the Vulgate as Arcturus and Orion. Now Kimah certainly does not mean Arcturus. The word, which occurs twice in the Book of Job (ix, 9; xxxviii, 31), is treated in the Septuagint version as equivalent to Pleiades. This, also, is the meaning given to it in the Talmud (TB Brachot 58b) and throughout Syrian literature; it is supported by etymological evidences, the Hebrew term being obviously related to the Arabic root kum (accumulate), and the Assyrian kamu (to bind); while the “chains of Kimah”, referred to in the sacred text, not inaptly figure the coercive power imparting unity to a multiple object. The associated constellation Kesil is doubtless no other than Orion. Yet, in the first of the passages in Job where it figures, the Septuagint gives Herper; in the second, the Vulgate quite irrelevantly inserts Arcturus; Karstens Niebuhr (1733–1815) understood Kesil to mean Sirius; Thomas Hyde (1636–1703) held that it indicated Canopus. Now kesil signifies in Hebrew “impious”, adjectives expressive of the stupid criminality which belongs to the legendary character of giants; and the stars of Orion irresistibly suggest a huge figure striding across the sky. The Arabs accordingly named the constellation Al-gebbar, “the giant”, the Syriac equivalent being Gabbara in old Syriac version of the Bible known as Peshitta. We may then safely admit that Kimah and Kesil did actually designate the Pleiades and Orion. But further interpretations are considerably more obscure. The Jewish Biblical Commentator Rashi says that Kimah emits cold, and that is what makes winter so cold. However, Kesil emits heat preventing the winter from getting too cold.

Ash

In the Book of Job—the most distinctively astronomical part of the Bible—mention is made, with other stars, of Ash and Ayish, almost certainly divergent forms of the same word. lts signification remains an enigma. The Vulgate and Septuagint inconsistently render it “Arcturus and Hesperus”. Abenezra (1092–1167), however, the learned Rabbi of Toledo, gave such strong reasons for Ash, or Ayish, to mean the Great Bear, that the opinion, though probably erroneous, is still prevalent. It was chiefly grounded on the resemblance between ash and the Arabic na ‘ash, “a bier”, applied to the four stars of the Wain, the three in front figuring as mourners, under the title of Benât na ‘ash, “daughters of the bier”. But Job, too, speaks of the “children of Ayish”, and the inference seems irresistible that the same star-group was similarly referred to in both cases. Yet there is large room for doubt. The Jewish Biblical Commentator Rashi says that Ayish is Alcyone. “Its Children” are the other stars of the Pleiades. Ayish needs to be consoled because two of the stars of The Pleiades were moved to Aries at the Deluge .

Modern philologists do not admit the alleged connection of Ayish with na ‘ash, nor is any funereal association apparent in Book of Job. On the other hand, Professor Schiaparelli draws attention to the fact that ash denotes “moth” in the Old Testament, and that the folded wings of the insect are closely imitated in their triangular shape by the doubly aligned stars of the Hyades. Now Ayish in the Peshitta is translated Iyutha, a constellation mentioned by St. Ephrem and other Syriac writers, and Schiaparelli’s learned consideration of the various indications afforded by Arabic and Syriac literature makes it reasonably certain that Iyutha authentically signifies Aldebaran, the great red star in the head of the Bull, with its children, the rainy Hyades. It is true that Hyde, Ewald, other scholars have adopted Capella and the Kids as representative of Iyutha, and therefore of “Ayish and her children”; but the view involves many incongruities.

Hadre Theman (Chambers of the South)

The glories of the sky adverted to the Book of Job include a sidereal landscape vaguely described as “the chambers [i.e. penetralia] of the south”. The phrase, according to Schiaparelli, refers to some assemblage of brilliant stars, rising 20 degrees at most above the southern horizon in Palestine about the year 750 B.C. (assumed as the date of the Patriarch Job), and, taking account of the changes due to precession, he points out the stellar pageant formed by the Ship, the Cross, and the Centaur meets the required conditions. Sirius, although at the date in question it culminated at an altitude of 41 degrees, may possibly have been thought of as belonging to the “chambers of the south”; otherwise, this splendid object would appear to be ignored in the Bible.

Mezarim

Job opposes to the “chambers of the south”, as the source of cold, an asterism named Mezarim (xxxvii, 9). Both the Vulgate and the Septuagint render this word by Arcturus, evidently in mistake (the blunder is not uncommon) for Arctos. The Great Bear circled in those days much more closely round the pole than it now does; its typical northern character survives in the Latin word septentrio (from septem triones, the seven stars of the Wain); and Schiaparelli concludes from the dual form of mezarim, that the Jews, like the Phoenicians, were acquainted with the Little, as well as with the Great, Bear. He identifies the word as the plural, or dual, of mizreh, “a winnowing-fan”, an instrument figured by the seven stars of the Wain, quite as accurately as the Ladle of the Chinese or the Dipper of popular American parlance.
